Dignità Autonome di Prostituzione. Inside the brothel, deep down in the soul

A dreamlike journey that tells the story of life through a theatrical genre that breaks the mold.

From June 29th to July 14th, at Castel Sant’Elmo, the Teatro Bellini in Naples (Italy) presents Dignità Autonome di Prostituzione (Autonomous Dignities of Prostitution), a show that has been alive and growing for 17 years.

Produced by Ente Teatro Cronaca Vesuvioteatro, the format, created by Luciano Melchionna together with Betta Cianchini, goes beyond the show to transform itself into an experience that shocks and involves, any time in a different way. It is definitely the envy of the fancy, tacky and monotonous Broadway shows.

Dignità autonoma di Prostituzione is an exceptional and intense event: a dreamlike journey made even more magical by the historic location of Castel Sant’Elmo and its breathtaking view.

It is a surreal journey that begins at the entrance of the castle and gradually ascends into a highly evocative atmosphere.

It’s a genre of theater that breaks the mold: a party of madmen and drags; music and performances that tighten and scratch; the voice of the people that resonates in the soul; allowing a humanity to emerge made up of life stories that touch the heart and dig deep into the conscience.

In such an evocative atmosphere, the actors, dressed in dressing gowns like prostitutes, entice and allow themselves to be approached by the spectators who, like the clients of a brothel, are equipped with “dollars” and must negotiate the price of individual performances (pleasure pills) to attend classical and contemporary monologues written mostly by the author and director Luciano Melchionne, an extraordinary aesthete of thought and art who plays their “pimp”.

It’s not enough to tell it, you have to experience it, and when you do it you want to go back to continue to discover what moves behind the brothel of life.

Dignità Autonome di Prostituzione is the pinnacle of lucidity that creates addiction, an exhilarating and constructive addiction, which will open your heart and put you in contact with other human beings and with those who will make this journey unforgettable. You have already met one of them, who was the protagonist of the latest issue of Napulitanamente, and it is thanks to him that we found ourselves catapulted into this fantastic world.
